About place

Smjörfjöll ("Butter Mountains") is a name covering several mountains - about 1250 m. - between Vopnafjörður and the region of Jökulsárshlíð. North of them is the pass Hellisheiði with the road from Vopnafjörður to Fljótsdalshérað. The pass is an elevated one, 730 m. - offering a beautiful view across the bay Héraðsflói. The road is a rough terrain and weather forecast should be heeded.
